Women’s Fall Retreat — October 27-28
“I didn’t think it would be like this.”
“It’s not what I expected.”
“If only my life were different.”
“That’s not how I planned it.“
Comments like these reveal the shock, disappointment and even despair that we feel when something in our lives doesn’t turn out the way we thought or hoped. Mark your calendar and make plans to attend our Women’s Fall retreat hosted at Castleview. This year’s theme will dive into the reality of “Unmet Expectations: Finding Hope and Help When Life Doesn’t Go As Planned.” Teaching will be led by pastor’s wife and author, Lisa Hughes, from Louisville, KY. This year’s retreat will be hosted at Castleview and will be a weekend of learning, fellowship and worship that you will not want to miss! Watch for retreat details and registration information that will be available in September.

Titus 2:3-5 teaches us that discipleship is very important in the life of women. Danelle Bancroft, wife of pastor Eric Bancroft, has recently written a helpful guide for the deliberate discipleship of women. There are two goals for providing this material: First, to provide a strategic plan for Christians to utilize in learning all of Christ’s word and obeying all of his commands. Second, to have this material utilized in the context of personal relationships where a Christian who has been walking with Jesus longer can walk alongside another Christian to aid them in their learning that leads to greater worship of Christ. Growth happens in relationships as we learn more about our Bible, our God, the Gospel and God’s calling on our lives as women. A copy of “Follow Me as I follow Christ” is now available as a free download: Follow Me as I Follow Christ.
